Welcome to The Folly – Music, Comedy and Culture Festival 2019!

We are very excited as July 19th, and the start of this year’s Folly Festival fast approaches! We had a super weekend in 2018 and we have worked hard to ensure it’s even bigger and better this year. We are delighted to have confirmed our line up for 2019, and it will no doubt be an amazing weekend, with acts such as Hermitage Green, Wyvern Lingo and The 2 Johnnies hitting the stage!

Our Daytime Events on Saturday 20th July, are open for everyone to attend, whether you have a ticket or not!

The Folly really is a fun filled, family friendly festival, which has something for all ages!

Among the activities are a guided walk up Cullohill Mountain, Adventure Race, Artisan Food & Drink Market, Dog Show, The Great Folly Bake, Magician Brian Daly, in our very special Kid’s Play Area in Nancy’s Yard, and lots, lots more!

Special guests on the day include comedian and TV star, Bernard O’Shea, and former Munster and Ireland rugby legend, Alan Quinlan!

The Folly is the first gender balanced festival in Ireland.

What is a gender balanced festival?  Very simply it is a festival with equal numbers of male and female performers. Throughout the entertainment industry male artists outnumber female artists 5:1 and the ratio is the same throughout production roles.  The Folly is the first festival in Ireland which actively promotes gender balance and selects act accordingly.


" Gender equality is critical to the development and peace of every nation. "
